Kidderminster park protected for future generations
6:00am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Local
A KIDDERMINSTER park has been protected for future generations.
Springfield Park is now part of the QEII Fields Challenge programme, which aims to protect outdoor recreational spaces across the UK to create a grassroots legacy from the momentous events of 2012 including Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The 42-acre Kidderminster beauty spot will now be protected forever for the health and wellbeing of the community and to increase habitat and wildlife diversity.
Members of the Friends of Springfield Park (FoSP) were given a plaque to mark the achievement.
Jo Knight, chairman of Friends of Springfield Park, said: “This award will increase the ability of the Friends of Springfield Park to attract grants and funding for improvement projects as it ensures the park will never be sold for housing or commercial development but will remain for the use of the community in perpetuity.
“We look forward to incorporating the impressive plaque into a redesigned entrance gate in Springfield Lane which is in the planning stages.”
